NFL franchise tag tracker 2017: Big names won’t hit free agency market

New, comments

With the NFL franchise tag window closing soon, teams are making moves to ensure their top players remain in-house at least for 2017. Using the franchise tag also gives the team more time to work out a new deal.

Some big name players have received the franchise tag designation so far.

DE/LB Chandler Jones, Arizona Cardinals -- $16.9 million projected cap figure

DT Kawann Short, Carolina Panthers — $13.5 million projected cap figure

RB Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers — $12.4 million projected cap figure

DE Jason Pierre-Paul, New York Giants — $16.9 million projected cap figure

LB Melvin Ingram, Los Angeles Chargers — $14.75 million projected cap figure

*S Eric Berry won’t receive franchise tag as he signs 6-year, $78 million deal with Chiefs

QB Kirk Cousins, Washington — $24 million projected cap figure

CB Trumaine Johnson, Los Angeles Rams — $16 million projected cap figure

The franchise tag deadline has passed. Notable players who did not receiver the franchise tag include Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, Chiefs defensive tackle Dontari Poe, Texans cornerback AJ Bouye, and Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower.
